Title: My Life Next Door
Author: Huntley Fitzpatrick
Publication Date: June 14, 2012
“One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time.”
The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen year old Samantha wishes she was one of them… until the day Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything.
Jase can sense that his beautiful neighbor is missing something in her sterile home, and as the two fall fiercely in love, his family makes her one of their own.
But when the bottom drops out of Sam’s world, which perfect family will save her–and will her perfect love survive?
Set among the haves and have-nots of a coastal New England town, My LIFE NEXT DOOR captures the angst, the heartache, and the raw-nerve emotions of first time love—and biting loss.
This book looks so good! Cutesy, but serious at the same time. I’m not HUGE on contemporaries, but this one is reminding me of Lola and the Boy Next Door, so I definitely NEED to read it.

. The book I am dying to get my hands on as soon as possible is…
Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan’s life. She’s stuck at JFK, late to her father’s second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that Hadley’s never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport’s cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he’s British, and he’s in seat 18C. Hadley’s in 18A.
Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves. Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver’s story will make you believe that true love finds you when you’re least expecting it.
Ahhh.. I feel like people have been talking about this book for forever! It sounds like such a cute, fun read. And seriously, I am obsessed with their names. Hadley and Oliver? So precious! I just put my order in for this book so I should be receiving it very soon! 🙂
What about you? What are you waiting on?
